To support its business growth and a clearly defined global business strategy, Surrenda-link had identified the need for a solution to help improve its data management and reporting capabilities. This solution would also need to support and integrate with Surrenda-linkâs existing in-house modeling and valuation functions. SunGardâs Ambit met these needs by offering Surrenda-link automated reporting and a single, hosted platform for viewing data.
Jeremy Brettell, chief executive at Surrenda-link Investment Management, said: âWe had a clearly defined need for a solution that would help us to produce more intuitive and up-to-date reports on the investment portfolios of and for our clients, as well as integrate with key existing systems. The Ambit Leasing & Asset Based Finance solution was identified as providing us with a flexible technology platform, capable of joint development with the SunGard team, that would automate and improve reporting. At the same time, it could help us to deliver client services in our specialist market sector that we believe will be ahead of any competitor capability. Furthermore, the hosted model will help us to keep costs down in the face of these process improvements.â
Dave Barrett, chief operating officer at SunGardâs Ambit Leasing & Asset Based Finance business unit, commented: âIncreasingly, organizations such as Surrenda-link are choosing to turn to outside vendors for technological application support. This is an effective and cost-efficient option for firms that want to reap the benefits of automation without the upfront capital that is traditionally related to new infrastructure builds.â
